One thought is that maybe it might be better to avoid any mention of "rights" on this page at all, but that's sort of a confusing* area for me, and an important one for evolt. There needs to be a simple way of saying: once you have published on evolt, you can expect that we will archive your email or article. All republish rights to your piece revert back to you. And should it be said here or elsewhere, is another question. Erika +++++++++++++++++++++ *thinking that my confusion comes from the original notion of publishing being print-based, so something is printed once, and lives once.... whereas with electronic publishing, it's printed once, but can be *removed* from print... *removing* is what we don't generally do. I am not a lawyer, and I apologize if I'm making this unnecessarily confusing.
